  • Air pollution in KC in 60s, and a polluted stream All linked to our water supplies and uses.Overall ecological disasters like DDT and eagles, Love canal, Times beach here in Missouri
  • No one area (civil, geological, chemical engineering) can cover all the areas that encompass “Environmental Engineering” as it is now known. So degree programs have begun to appear. This is more important as our ability to pollute our environment has grown to global proportion (ozone hole, Global warming?)Photos of a polluted discharge to a stream, a water treatment plant that results in safe drinking water.
  • The Missouri S&T chapter of Engineers Without Borders, founded in April, 2005, was the first EWB student chapter in Missouri. EWB-S&T works through Engineers Without Borders-USA and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to improve the quality of life in developing communities while training internationally-responsible engineering students. EWB-Missouri S&T specializes in the implementation of equitable and environmentally- and economically-sustainable engineering projects. Since 2006 the team has worked on infrastructure projects in Bolivia, Honduras, and Guatemala, many involving sanitation and clean water. EWB trips to ensure the ongoing success of past projects, and identify future opportunities to help other people. Students need many skills to make EWB-S&T programs successful, and they accept all academic disciplines. Understanding the non-engineering components of local needs is often more complicated than the engineering aspects themselves. It is EWB's goal to instill this reality in all participating students.

    1. 1. Welcome
    2. 2. Our MissionIntegrate education and research to create and conveyknowledge to solve problems for our state and thetechnological world.
    3. 3. Butler-Carlton Building• Bigger, up-to-date classrooms• More student space (atrium)• State-of-the-art technology
    4. 4. Overview of Programs• Civil Engineering - Oldest Program on Campus• Architectural Engineering - First Graduate May 2004 ALL Programs• Environmental Engineering Accredited - First Graduate December 2005
    5. 5. Civil EngineeringEgyptian pyramids Great Wall of China Roman Aqueducts Engineering for Civilization
    6. 6. What do Civil Engineers do?• Structures• Environmental• Transportation• Geotechnical• Construction• Materials• Water Resources
    7. 7. Civilization and InfrastructureThe sub-disciplines combine in things we ALL use andare often public owned or shared:• Buildings• Streets and Roads• Water Supply and Distribution• Airports• Bridges• Flood Protection …
    8. 8. Is Civil Engineering a good fit for YOU?• Are you interested in large infrastructure projects that improve society?• Do you enjoy being part of an interdisciplinary team?• Do you like to see the results of your labor? (building, bridge, canal, etc.)
    9. 9. Architectural Engineering Sydney Opera House Engineering a more aesthetic future for the world!
    10. 10. What is Architectural Engineering?• Any engineering applied toa building project that eitherenables or enhances theintended use of the facility• All engineering designthat falls within the building“envelope” falls within thecategory of architecturalengineering
    11. 11. What’s the difference between an Architectural Engineer and an Architect?• Architectural Engineer - responsible for the design of theengineering systems in a building including the structural system,HVAC, plumbing, power distribution, acoustics, and illuminationas well as the construction of the building.Registered Professional Engineer (PE)• Architect - responsible for the aesthetics or the appearance ofthe building and the floor plan/layout.Registered Architect (AIA)
    12. 12. Emphasis Areas (Architectural Engineering)• Structural Engineering - framing, supports, walls, floors, ceilings• Mechanical Engineering - acoustics, heating, ventilation and air conditioning• Electrical Engineering - lighting - power• Construction Materials Engineering - building material selection• Construction Management - execution of construction documents and specifications - design/build oriented firms
    13. 13. Is Architectural Engineering a good fit for YOU?• Are you comfortable with math and physical science?• Are you curious and do you have a creative side?• Do you value independence and responsibility?• Do you want to make a world of difference through the useful application of science?
    14. 14. Environmental Engineering Optimizing the balance of man’s development and the impact on our global and local environment
    15. 15. Before and After “Environmental Engineering” Before After The Great London Smog Lasted for five days and resulted in about 4,000 deaths Cuyahoga River, Ohio Caught fire 15 times Cuyahoga
    16. 16. What is Environmental Engineering?• Water supply and treatment• Air pollution control• Wastewater treatment• Hazardous waste remediation and management• Solid waste disposal• Public health• Policy and law
    17. 17. Why isEnvironmentalEngineeringimportant?Environmental Engineering:discipline needs broad knowledge in manyareas that were previously not covered inany one field.
    18. 18. Is Environmental Engineering a good fit for YOU?• Do you have interest in the environment?• Do you like large scale challenges?• Are you comfortable with interdisciplinary issues?
    19. 19. Job Outlook for Environmental EngineersEnvironmental engineers are expected to have employmentgrowth of 31 percent over the projections decade,much faster than the average for all occupations. Moreenvironmental engineers will be needed to help companiescomply with environmental regulations and to developmethods of cleaning up environmental hazards.Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition,Engineers, on the Internet at
